Will I be able to keep my mobile number? Does GiffGaff literally just offer O2's network (so the coverage and speeds are identical etc) Is the internet REALLY unlimited if it says it's unlimited - can you also use the Android hotspot thing?(where you turn a 3G signal in to a local WiFi)? Can you topup with O2 vouchers?(I saw a thread about this but couldn't conclude whether or not it still works) Do all shops allow you to ask for a GiffGaff voucher yet - or just a few? With referal points (e.g. 1000 points) can you buy a £10 topup(with unlimited internet etc) - do the points expire? If I order the SIM today will I always have the same terms (same amount of texts and internet ect?) Does the SIM work with O2 locked phones - or just "unlocked/SIM free" phones?
Few that's all the questions I can think of for now
Thanks for reading and sorry there are so many questions!
p.s I added number references

woah! alot of questions LOL
1. yes you will
3. yes giffgaff keeps its word ;]
4. yes i think
5. yes you can
6. just a few, if a shop doesnt sell it just get a o2 top up!
8. you have to choose what you want to do with the points before a certain date,... you can change it to cash/ make it top up or give it to charity!
9. it depends, giffgaff might change its prices, e.g they made texts 2p expensive
10. it works with o2 locked and unlocked phones

"No you have to spend your credit to get the goody bag buys it well worth it"
Can you manage with just the £10 goodie bag? Or do you find yourself unable to call certain people etc?
(( Thanks for the replies btw ))
Edit: "I think 4 is no. That would be tethering."
So you can't use hotspot apps at all? Kinda seems pointless to have the apps if most networks disallow their use

"well i think 250 minutes is enough for me, it depends how much people you call really
by the way when you call people who are on giffgaff your minutes will not go
hope i helped!"
What I mean is do you lose some functionality, such as the ability to use voicemail, send texts abroard, ring paid phone numbers (A cinema, for example, might charge £1 a minute plus your network charge (which would be free)) or send a text on the 31st day (after 1 month).
Also can you set it so that GiffGaff automatically purchases a package (the £10 one) if the correct sum of money is available in credit?

oh sorry never understood you the first time, yes you will lose that
when you sue up all of your goodybag you will be required to top up again so that you have credit for emergency calls etc
yes just click auto topup (which is on my giffgaff)
and when it has enough money you can queue goodybags
